"Kościół św. Aleksandra" (St. Alexander's Church) is a Roman Catholic church on "Plac Trzech Krzyży" (Triple Cross Square) in Warsaw, Poland. The church was built in 1818 and has witnessed a number of historic events, including the 1912 funeral service for Bolesław Prus, who died a couple of blocks away in his apartment on "ulica Wilcza" (Wolf Street).

When the church was rebuilt after its destruction in World War II, its dimensions were slightly reduced, while retaining the original design.
